Here is my question
 
Are you going to leave Gamespot?

A)
I have already left Gamespot
B) I am going to leave Gamespot today or in couple days time
C) I will have left by the end of the month
D) I will leave but I don't know when
E) I may leave
F) I will never leave

I have left but I will go on there a couple times to see what they have been saying about Giantbomb which is funny as they know they are no longer the better gaming website

 

 

 

If anyone what to add me to your friends list I will accept

My answer is F. I plan to use both sites equally, although I expect this site to have far superior editorial content :)

I don't think I'll leave entirely; I'll continue to post in my unions, but that's about it I think.

I'll use gamespot for the UK forum, but Giant Bomb is the site I will use the most of the two from now.

No, but if it wasn't for System Wars section I wouldn't touch the forums.

The mods are too strict there, hopefully GBomb will be a bit more lenient.

A. For me, the life of Gamespot was sucked away when Jeff, Ryan, Vinny, Brad and Alex left - and I just can't stand Homer.

Well, Last september Gamespot banned me by mistake, yes by mistake, and have yet to unban me. So I gave up on them. Once I heard this site was being opened I was extremly happy.

Somewhere between E and F. Never say never, but I don't see myself leaving any time soon. I know the people on the AU forums so I'm not going to jump ship just because GB is now up and running.
And I agree with Tiago. The mods over there in general are too strict. The AU forums were better, but from my experience, the rest of the forums were run with an iron fist.

I completely left after Jeff.  Never looked back.  Well I did use them to watch the E3 '08 press conferences from work this year, but that was it.

I haven't left, but I don't feel the same for it any more. I just use to for looking up stuff thats not out. I don't take there reviews to be straight and true and I don't hang around there often.

I don't think I'll leave. GameSpot Australia is where I hang out. It's a nice group over there.

I'll be posting blogs and videos on both websites though. I've pasted my blogs from GS on here, but all future entries will be made for both websites.

I canceled my GS subscription before the avalanche of staff changes happened - it went downhill when Greg left to be honest and continued bleeding with Carrie and Rich leaving. After that it wasn't the same anymore. "Gerstmangate" didn't have that much to do with it. Don't know if I really "left" anyway. I'm not married to any site and would use it exclusively. Why would anyone do that? Also, it's probably still better than IGN ;-)

E - I may leave.

Me leaving GS all depends on what Giantbomb can offer me, how the site and community evolves.

I'm gonna say E, but it'll probably be F.  I'm going to try and frequent both sites.  I only use GS for the forums though.

i vote b. i only went there for the forums, but there were too many mods that punished you for the stupidest reasons. and a lot of the great people have left. also theres a lot of elitism (aka fanboyism) in the game specific boards.

I choose F. I've established myself fairly well as a gamespot member, so I'll equate usage with both sites by replicating the blogs and other content I create. However, I'm quite sure I'll be heading to Giant Bomb for the editorial and forum action.

F. Despite not agreeing or taking their reviews seriously anymore, I still enjoy reading the "System Wars" posts as they are usually really stupid and amusing so unless that the message board stops existing I guess I will be using both GameSpot and Giant Bomb from now.

F. I don't just plan on using Giant Bomb, but a variety of other sites including Gamespot. A sites lasting appeal for me is how easy the site is to use, and how well the comunity features are. At this early stage, Giant Bomb has already done great.

I don't bother going on there unless they have an exclusive or particularly good video content.

A, I liked the old gang for a reason, they knew what they were talking about, rather than simply filling roles they needed to fill by any staff member, suited or unsuited for the job/

I agree with Soap up here. I'm not planning on leave, but I don't trust them anymore. Too many strange things in the past... also, I prefer Giant Bomb along with ign or edge online... So my pick is for letter G - I won't leave but it's just not the same

Shalom :)

My choice is probably F. I won't ever be able to completely leave Gamespot, due to the unions and friends I have there, but my activity there will probably be diminished.

I've been on Gamespot some number of years, but left the off-topic forums after a severe grade in quality.
